. the fbi says no. >> fine. the big thing for me is i would rather this not impede any of the discussion on actual issues so if getting him out of there meant that the president didn't have to answer lots and lots of questions about what he knew and why is he still there that's fine. you know why i feel bad about it nobody is talking about petraeus' wife. she suffered in silence and either knew or is now incredibly humiliated by the whole thing. >> bill: an outstanding lady. she works for -- >> financial -- the financial consumer protection bureau. >> bill: yeah, right. >> you know, fine. let's get on where -- there are other people who can do petraeus's job and let's just move on to the fiscal cliff, for example. let's stop the country from going into a recession. >> bill: i won't debate it with everybody. that's what people are talking about today. >> fox is probably leading with that instead of the fiscal cliff. >> bill: they did. >> of course they did. >> bill: i also want to point out that peopl

biographer paula broadwell that came to light after the fbi began investigating harassing e-mails sent to jill kelley, a socialite in tampa. the fbi found out it was broadwell sending those e-mails. according to the washington post, the e-mail described kelly as a -- i don't know why they do this. as a seductress. accused her of having a relationship with petraeus. for more on where things stand we're joined by chief white house correspondent -- mike isikoff, and of course we've got david corn, who's on the show now from mother jones. let me talk about this, first of all. i think it was interesting of the president to give almost a complete snow white description of this guy. he referred to the affair, which is the reason he's being removed from office, as a single side note. i mean, bill clinton went through -- he was keel hauled. >> yeah, yeah. >> this guy get a single side note. >> just a pesky asterisk. but, you know, politicians and presidents for years in washington have been using david petraeus as cover. if you can get underneath -- >> republicans said that name over and over.
to know why the fbi didn't notify them and the white house until just recently when it began months ago. that investigation far from over. fbi searching the home of petraeus's alleged mistress, paula broadwell. after david petraeus resigned his post as america's top spy. the scandal is widening. the woman in yellow, jill kelly, alerting a friend of hers that works in the fbi to threatening e-mails she says she was getting turning out to come from broadwell, part of an investigation involving another high-profile member of the military. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, john allen. the defense secretary leon panetta says the pentagon has launched an internal investigation into thousands of quote, inappropriate communications between general allen right there on the screen and that woman in yellow, kelly. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington. you almost need like one of those boards to put all the pictures up, catherine. >> reporter: you do rick. beyond the issue of failing to notify congress about the fbi investigation the democratic chair of the se

. >> let me ask you about those additional complications. it turns out the fbi found out about this because paula brock well the mistress was sending threatening e-mails to another woman whom she regarded as a threat to her relationship with petraeus. what do you know about that relationship between the other woman and petraeus? >> well, there is an fbi investigation. that is continuing. i read both the post and the times this morning and it is pretty well laid out, i think. it i hate to discuss it except to say there are a nom of things that one has to consider. the first of which was there any kind of national security breech. to date there was not. and the fbi had briefed me now. i actually wish we had been briefed a little earlier. one of the things i have tried to do is get both sides together. the chairman and share material and worked together. that is a very important concept with neither of us knowing all of this comes as a big shock, and we are very muchable to keep things in a classified setting at least if you know you can begin to think and then to plan and of course we have no
